Children, youth and families can begin a referral by attending the CYMH Intake Clinic for a Screening Interview. This initial meeting
will typically be 30 – 90 minutes in length. Upon completion of this interview, a CYMH clinician will provide you with information and details on the next steps in the process. In the Central Okanagan area, the Intake Clinic is provided each week. No appointment is necessary. Please refer to the back pages of this pamphlet for details.
For your first visit:
No appointments are required for first-time visitors – simply walk-in during the hours listed on this pamphlet. Please note that there may be a wait for your interview as the Intake Clinic is for drop-ins only. Priority may also be given to individuals who are in urgent
Parents/caregivers are encouraged to only bring the child/youth who is seeking services with them to the Intake Clinic, as childminding is not provided on-site. Older children and youth are encouraged to attend the Intake Clinic with their parent. Youth have the option of attending the clinic on their own as a private self-referral.
In case of an emergency after hours, please visit your local hospital or call 9-1-1.
